His back to back seventies at a tournament in Hong Kong advance him to weekend play.
A Hong Kong teenager became the youngest player ever to make the cut at a European Tour event on Friday, breaking the record set by current world No. 2 Sergio Garcia.
Fourteen-year-old Jason Hak shot a 70 in each of the first two rounds at his home tournament, the $2.5 million Hong Kong Open. He just made the even-par 140 cut at the end of the second round by drilling a 150-yard approach onto the 18th green and holing a 10-foot putt for birdie.
Jason Hak’s golf idol growing up was Tiger Woods. But he’s not thinking about becoming Asia’s version of the world’s greatest golfer just yet.
Garcia was 15 years, 46 days old when he made the cut at the Turespana Open Mediterrania in Valencia, Spain, in 1995.
Hak, who is 14 years, 304 days old, has no immediate plans to turn professional.
But will he sign an endorsement deal with Nike? Yes, the European golf Tour plays in Asia. They just came off events in China and Singapore.
